94 years ago in a little house on South 8th Street in Brighton Colorado Lenore Ann Westermann was born. At the age of 4 she and her family moved to the two story yellow house on the corner of Strong Street and 5th where she resided for the next 90 years.
Lenore was a lifetime member of Zion Lutheran Church in Brighton where she was baptized and confirmed. She attended Zion Lutheran School from 1st through 8th grade.

After high school graduation she continued her education by attending Colorado University in Boulder, Colorado where she honorably graduated Phi Beta Kappa. After graduating from the university and having had an emphasis in Spanish, she was hired by Great Western Sugar Company as a translator and interpreter for the laborers who came in the summer to work in the beet fields.
